They’re generally agreeable and supportive to everyone in their presence, providing stability and reliability to those who need it. However, their need for narrative control and adherence to strict standards can sometimes come across as overbearing or suspicious.

Archetypal Story of Corona
Emperors New Groove:
Emperor Kuzco has been doted upon since his birth. Sheltered within the confines of his palace, the entire kingdom revolves around him and caters to his every need and whim. He is very much a product of his upbringing, obsessively self-centered, picky, and dismissive as one would expect. He considers himself to be the pinnacle of hip and stylish, and inflicts swift vengeance upon anyone who throws off his groove.
Although he is unaware of reality or the state of things in his kingdom, he is not as aloof as his advisor believes him to be. He catches onto her attempt to take over his station and run the kingdom herself, though it is arguable she always has been the one actually running things as he phones it in and goes on with his unending hedonism.
On the eve of his 18th birthday, he fires Yzma, and the disgruntled advisor sulks in her secret lair to plot revenge. After a few comically elaborate procedures, she falls back on the classic method of poisoning the emperor during a ‘no hard feelings’ dinner ruse. Her assassination attempt fails, however, for it wasn’t a deadly poison her assistant snuck into the Emperor’s drink, but one of transformation.
Now in the form of a llama, Kuzco is whisked off into the night by her assistant Kronk to ‘finish the job’, but when the time comes to issue the killing blow, he doesn’t do it. Tied up in a sack, the knocked-out llama heads off on the cart of a village leader named Pacha, who had visited the emperor earlier that day. In human form, Kuzco had announced that he would be destroying Pacha’s village to make room for his vacation home. Distraught, the man returned home unaware of the stowaway, and could not bring himself to tell his family what was to happen to their home.
When the two meet again, Kuzco has a meltdown over his unfortunate change of form, and Pacha sees an opportunity to prevent him from destroying his home. But even in his desperate state, Kuzco’s pride and selfishness prevent him from recognizing that he will need assistance to be restored. Rather than accept an offer to be escorted back to the palace, he heads off into the rainforest alone. Needless to say, as he hadn’t been outside the city and couldn’t fend for himself, his bestial form is easy pickings for the jaguars. Though his demise would have solved the villagers’ problem, Pacha couldn’t bring himself to leave the emperor out there to die, and comes to his rescue.
They take turns getting each other in and out of trouble on the way back to the palace, and come to find out they are being pursued. Yzma has figured out that the job wasn’t finished, and sets out to finish it herself, but Kuzco is blissfully unaware that she was the one responsible for his curse. He finds out too late, after betraying Pacha, who was trying to protect him from Yzma, and endures a dark night of the soul, coming to grips with his own stupidity.
He briefly flirts with the idea of accepting life as a llama, but finds he is very bad at it, and once again the villager comes to the rescue him from himself. They get to the palace, have a stand-off with Yzma over the antidote, and ultimately Cuzco’s humanity is restored. He makes good on his promise not to destroy the village in the end, even going so far as to build a luxurious getaway to share with the villagers.
The two men enjoy a life of Affluence, as Kuzco learns that friendship is a form of wealth he has been missing out on. For all his riches, his self-centeredness had left him very lonely, and he now enjoys the company of Pacha’s family and his own people. He has come into his own as a ruler, becoming aware of the conditions of his citizens, no longer sitting on-high in his ivory tower, looking down on them. Though he had always been Classy, this journey of self discovery reveals that true elegance is an aura extended to everyone around him, not something selfishly hoarded. He takes an altruistic role in support of the kingdom, raising standards for everyone.
